Kathy Griffin is Back, Says ‘I Am No Longer Sorry’ About Trump Photo Stunt


Kathy Griffin

Kathy Griffin is back in the public eye, appearing in Australia on a comedy tour, and claiming she is “no longer sorry: about the controversial photo shoot which effectively ended her career.


Griffin appeared on Australia’s “Sunrise” TV show, that country’s version of “Today” or “Good Morning America,” to promote her tour. The interview became contentious when the subject turned to Donald Trump.

Griffin, of course, created a public firestorm earlier this year when she posed with a mock up of President Trump’s bloody severed head. The photo earned outrage from across the political and public spectrums.

During a press conference in which she apologized for her actions, she then accused the President, First Lady, and his children of trying to “ruin my life.”

As a result of her stunt, Griffin lost an endorsement deal, her New Year’s Eve hosting gig on CNN, and all of her concert dates in the United States were canceled.

During her interview with Sunrise, she rambled about President Trump conducting investigations while people in Houston were dying. When asked if she saw that the photo was in poor taste, she told the interviewers that they were “full of crap.”

Here is more on her interview with Australia’s “Sunrise,” from Yahoo UK.

“I am no longer sorry, the whole outrage was bs, it was blown out of proportion and I lost everybody,” she told Sunrise.

“Chelsea Clinton was tweeting against me, Debra Messing from Will and Grace tweeting against me.

“I lost everybody, so I have been through the mill and I didn’t just lose one night on CNN, my tour was cancelled within 24 hours because every theatre got death threats.

Asked by Armytage if she didn’t think her stunt “ was over the line”, Griffin bit back saying the picture did not compare to the “actual atrocities that the President of the United States is committing.”
